Im looking to add another big game to my collection. I just have a few preferences.

1. Plays with at least 2 Players.
2. Has awesome components, and artwork.
3. Not overly complex rules.
4. About 3-4 Hours max playtime.

I have my eyes on Runewars and Dust Tactics but im open to any theme and any game.

An idea of what im enjoying/playing right now, Arkham Horror, Pandemic, 7 Wonders.

Maybe Claustrophobia
or Earth Reborn but it's a bit more complex

War of the Ring might be a good option, but it doesn't scale beyond four players and I'm not sure how well it plays beyond two. You can't get a bigger theme than Middle Earth, really, and this game perhaps handles that theme the best. If you're particularly after a two-player game, then this is the best I can come up with to meet your criteria; your post seems to indicate two as a minimum, though, and not a maximum.

Yes 2 players is a minimum not a max. I was also looking at Castle Ravenloft.

It seems you're enjoying co-op games, so Middle Earth Quest will scratch that itch for most of the players, and was a great suggestion!

Runewars is the go.

War of the Ring is two player only - there are rules for 3-4 players but it does not work nearly as well.

You might consider Sid Meier's Civ (the new one) but I would go Runewars over that every time.

Merchants & Marauders: 2-4 players, the rules have some details, but all are really thematic... So it's simple to deduce.
